Well I have never been thought of as a lady...but I do know what you mean...Several years ago when stamps were around .12 I got a bill from somewere I think it was from a hospital, they have aways been on my bad side.....but anyway the bill was for a nickle.....YUP!!! I thought it was a mistake so I didn't pay it and the next month I got another one. I let it go and finally the 5th time I sent them 5 pennies taped VERY well to a heavy sheet of paper.... All I said was " Near as I can tell with someone's time and the postage, envelopes and the paper for the bill, sending me this 5 cent bill every month for 5 months that you needed that this more than I did......NOW am I paid in full?"
Believe it or not I got a reply telling me that Yes I was paid in full and Thank You.......HEHEHE......I know it took more than a nickles worth of someone's time to get those pennies off that cardboard....
Had I been the lady in the accounting department I would have went around to 5 co-workers and gathered 5 pennies and been done with me......lol
